Welcome to our blog.
Livin’ off the Hook in every sense is our goal; Liam, our kids & I are not just livin’ off the Hook peninsula where we’re from in Co. Wexford, Ireland & we’re also livin’ an alternative lifestyle, living in a van, travelling full time, living a vegan life and road-schooling the kids along the way.
We got fed up with Ireland’s long wet winters so we had been looking for a new adventure & to do it with our two kids. We’ve left our jobs, sold up most of our belongings & bought a 6 berth camper van which we have been living in since June 2018 while we rent out our house & we are making our way slowly around Europe on a budget. We’ve managed to run a pretty tight ship financially as we continue our travels for a second year.
The Hook where we are from is a gorgeous rural part of Ireland where Liam worked at the oldest working lighthouse in the world Hook lighthouse and was also the caretaker of another nearby lighthouse. He does Wim Hof method, meditation & goes swimming in the sea almost every day of the year. I am a personal trainer and yoga teacher and worked from our home gym and I have a shop on Etsy where I make and sell crochet lace accessories.
We continue to make crochet lace accessories, jewelry and clothing to sell on the road and through our shop and we also teach yoga at campsites, beaches and yoga retreat centers and Liam teaches breath work and cold exposure at various centers across Europe.
With no plan in mind and no route to follow, who knows where the road will take us next!
